The 33-year-old Sneijder was last at Turkish club Galatasaray where he had spent the previous four and a half seasons. Prior to that he was at Inter and Real Madrid after breaking in Ajax.

Sneijder had been spotted at the club’s Champions League qualifier against Ajax, but his agent had denied transfer talks with Nice.
